MATLAB R2015a and later is supported on Windows 10.
Earlier releases of MATLAB are not supported and are not guaranteed to work on Windows 10.

Rui, I faced the same problem as I have windows 10 on my lap
and this was the solution I made and it works correctly
I just ran into this same problem. No idea how safe this actually is to do, but I was able to work around it by temporarily fooling the installer into thinking I had a different version of .NET 4.0 installed. I opened Process Monitor (To install this go to this link "https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/Library/bb896645.aspx") and used it to monitor everything that setup.exe was doing in order to find out how it was determining that I had a "pre-release" version of .NET 4.0.
It turns out that it looks at these two strings in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client\Version
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full\Version
On my Windows 10 machine, these currently are both 4.6.00079. The installer doesn't seem to like this value. I temporarily replaced both of them with the string 4.0.30319 in regedit to match the value from InstallPath, and that seemed to do the trick. And of course, when I was finished, I put them back the way they originally were.
However, I did not have permission to change those values, so it was a bit tricky. I right-clicked on the Client key, chose Permissions, and clicked Advanced. Then I changed the owner to my user account instead of TrustedInstaller. This allowed me to add permissions for Full Control for myself so I could modify the Version value. I repeated the same process on the Full key. After the installer completed successfully, I put the original version values back in (4.6.00079), deleted the permissions I added for myself, and restored the owner to TrustedInstaller (to do that, type NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller as the username).
There might be a safer/easier way of intercepting the registry reads than actually modifying the registry, but this was simple enough for me!
Hi. Today I verified that MEX compiler Matlab R2015b works on WIN 10 with Visual Studio 2015 installed. It did not work by performing default install of VS 2105 because C++ compiler support is not installed by default (file cl.exe is missing from \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\bin). The solution is to do custom install with C++ support included.
The answer was found here and here.
Just to mention, I upgraded to WIN10 from WIN 7.1.
I have seen on Microsoft website that a lot of MatLab versions were available on Microsoft 10 version 1703 (see https://developer.microsoft.com/fr-fr/windows/ready-for-windows#/results/?query=matlab&searchBy=1 ). Can someone has tried running MatLab v2012b on this version of Windows 10 ? Thanks

I have just done a clean install of Windows 10 and can confirm that it is not possible to install either MATLAB R2015a or the Microsoft Windows SDK 7.1 recommended for the MATLAB Compiler out of the box. The former fails with an error installing MVC++ 2005 Redistributable (x64), and the latter fails with a version error on .NET Framework 4.
As noted by Bjorn above, it may work for some, but be careful.

November update: It seems Microsoft has finally fixed this bug in the November release (Win 10, version 1511, build 10586.11). MATLAB R2015B now installs fine on a clean install of Windows 10.
Thank you, Nick!

I installed Matlab R2015A on the new Windows 10 Pro today. Matrix multiplication and some other small programs work fine. I compiled a standalone exe using the Matlab Compiler and the builtin lcc-win32. All ok. I am testing on an old machine, running 32-bit. I am looking forward to the word from the Mathworks Support Team. At least there is good hope.

I attempted to install 2007b. No problem with installation itself but when I attempt to run the program the logo comes for a second and it disappears. Same problem showed in Win7 too but there you could switch to Classic Theme. In Win10 it does not look possible to do that as there is no Classic Theme.

Has anyone tried to install the most recent version of Windows 10 with an already installed version of Matlab R2015a on a Windows 7 patform?

I'm having problems running Neural Network training with parallel computing on Matlab 2015b and Windows 10. Output says "Calculation mode: Parallel with MEX Workers" when training, but it takes forever..
Task manager reports 25% cpu utilization on a single core, on win7 and 2015a I had full utilization.

I tried to install Matlab in my laptop, but I can´t. I have windows 10 and when I want to install it an error of compatibility appears. If anyone knows how to solve it, please tell me. I need it to study.

Which MATLAB version are you using?
You will not be able to install R2016a or later if you are using a 32 bit version of MS Windows.
You can update Windows 10 to 64 bit, but it might not exactly be fun to do...

Do you have a 32-bit installation of Windows 10? If so, the last release of MATLAB that was supported on 32-bit Windows was release R2015b.

Answer by Shubham Patel on 12 Sep 2018

Yes, Even Matlab 2013b can be installed. If you want to use coder based toolboxes then 1. Uninstall any C++ redistributable 2010 2. Install .NET 4.0 3. Install Windows SDK 7.1 4. Install C++ Compiler for Windows SDK 7.1 separately It works fine.

I installed Matlab 2013b on my window 10, without installing Windows SDK7.1.4, model is running and I can generate code without any problem. I checked my program files installed, found following program installed:
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable(x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable -x64
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 Redistributable
Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable(x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable(x86)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable(x64)
Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable(x86)
Is my setup ok for code generation? Must SDK 7.1 4. C++ Compiler be installed to let model runing and code-gen work correctly?
